Horror Rules Jio MAMI 18th Mumbai Film Festival With Another Chilling Menu Of ‘After Dark’

Five horror films are scheduled for the 'After Dark’ segment of the 18th Mumbai Film Festival, definitely good news for horror fans in India.

 Babak Anvari’s writing-directing debut ‘Under the Shadow’ -a supernatural thriller set in 1980’s Tehran.

‘The Greasy Strangler’ is a shocking story of a slimy-greasy serial killer. Also the first feature film from Jim Hosking.

 
‘The Wailing’, a detective-horror story from the South Korean film director and screenwriter Na Hong-jin.

THE SIMILARS (LOS PARECIDOS), a fantasy suspense film.

First-time feature director movie, THE LURE (CORKI DANCINGU), the film by the first-time feature director Agnieszka Smoczyńska’s, described as the world’s first 80s inspired mermaid musical horror film.

Each film is handpicked by Jongsuk Thomas Nam, the curator of ‘After Dark’ Section at the festival. People who are old hands at the Film Festival will remember the screening of the Danish Antichrist in 2011, the film by Lars Von Trier, which starred William Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsburg. The film was very controversial because of its subject matter.

With that in mind, catching these films at the MAMI Festival should definitely be on the to-do list of Indian horror buffs. The Jio MAMI 18th Mumbai Film Festival with Star is scheduled to be held from 20th October - 27th October 2016.
